Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder concedes Metro ticket inspectors made the wrong call when they left a man alone in a train carriage with drunks. Ticketing inspectors got off the train when they were confronted on the city loop by an angry group of men, three months ago.
Passengers had to call for help when the group turned on a man in his 40s.
Mr Mulder says while the ticket inspectors are encouraged to avoid violence, their behaviour in this case was not in the best interests of the public.
"Generally the 540 of them [ticket inspectors] out there do a great job," he told ABC local radio.
"From time to time where going to make a judgement call and get it wrong it would appear in this particular case they haven't made the right call."
